At -10 degrees Celsius, the water will take up 1.63 L.

Work Step by Step

To calculate the mass of the water, multiply the volume of water (in mL) at 25 degrees Celsius by the density at 25 degrees Celsius. This gives a mass of 1495.5 mL. To get the volume of the water at -10 degrees Celsius, divide the mass by the density of water at -10 degrees Celsius. This will give you an answer in cubic centimeters, or milliliters. The answer is 1630.86 mL, and because of units and significant digits, you want to convert it to liters to get 1.63 L.
